The Gherkin and some neighbours

The Gherkin and surrounding buildings

Another impossible building to photograph, the shape of The Gherkin makes any attempt on a close up shot a non-starter. At the same time the surrounding buildings make it very difficult to get a good angle from a distance. I have taken dozens of shots (the most promising being reflections in the other glass building you can see) but this is the only one so far that seems any good. This shot appealed as much for the shapes made between the buildings as the angle on the buildings themselves. A photographer friend of mine cracked this problem by hiring a helicopter for an hour and got a wonderful set of images of The City including The Gherkin.
